Becoming a doctor was a dream for Robert Eller, D.O., that started early in his life. "Both sets of my grandparents passed away from heart disease and stroke," says Dr. Eller. "I wanted to be a doctor to learn how I could help prevent patients from becoming victims to their illnesses."
He chose to become an Internist due to his interest in many different specialties. Knowing it would provide him with a vast knowledge of medicine to treat his patients.
Dr. Eller believes his most important role, as a physician, is to be an advocate for patient health. To provide the tools and knowledge needed to remain healthy. He knows it's important to be an intermediary between specialists to help the patient understand all aspects of their healthcare.
What Dr. Eller values about being a provider is his daily interactions, strong bond that develops between himself and patients over time in order to help them live healthy lives.
He enjoys patient interaction, questions and discussions about their concerns. He will always try to listen to his patients in order to create an environment, beginning at the first appointment, with trust and understanding.
Dr. Eller earned his medical degree from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine then completed his internship and residency at Methodist Hospital Dallas, Texas.
Originally from Upstate New York- Syracuse, Dr. Eller enjoys spending his free time outdoors when possible hiking, skiing, and biking
